Dae Jang Geum Is Watching

So I just finished a drama that my Sone and Shin Dong Wook fangirl heart was much pleased to watch. Finally, I was able to see one of my favourite Korean actors leading a drama ever since his return to the world of dramas. Restarting his career from Lookout, Shin Dong Wook finally got to [...]

Starring Hyun Bin and Park Shin Hye, Memorie is a suspense filled and action packed roller coaster of a ride based in the world of alternative reality. Without further ado, let us delve into the plot. Jung Se Ju [...]

A Poetic Tragedy | Are You Human Too?

Grease Love and Woks Full of Melo | Greasy Melo

From the makers of Jealousy Incarnate, this was one heck of a unique show much like its predecessor and I enjoyed every minute of its quirky characters and the delicious food.

Coming to an end last night, the story was at once heartwarming, motivating and also greatly nostalgic, leaving me wanting much more than was offered in terms of emotional satisfaction. However, everything [...]
